National Business Honor Society Inductees

October 16, 2019

(HHS) - In mid-October, Hoover High School's Business and Entrepreneurship Academy inducted 63 students into the National Business Honor Society. In order to be eligible, students met the following criteria:

-Completed three business courses
-Meet or exceed a 3.0 overall GPA
-Meet or exceed a 3.5 GPA in their business courses

Hoover High School alumnus Thomas Walker, Jr., served as the keynote speaker.  A local business owner, Walker encouraged the inductees to study all aspects of business and realize that their dreams may not always unfold on timelines they expect.  Walker's business - Swervice - launched earlier this year in the APP stores.  It's an app-based vehicle service business that simplifies the repair/service process.

The National Business Honor Society was established in 2008, to promote and recognize academic achievement in business education, to foster and recognize leadership skills and character development; to help members grow ethically and socially by promoting and encouraging an interest in business; and to encourage member involvement in service-learning initiatives.  

Hoover High School was the first high school in the United States to establish a chapter; as such, it's considered the Alpha chapter.  Now, approximately 200 exist throughout the country.  October's induction ceremony at Hoover High brought the total number of student inductees to 360.
